Chapter 19 Lost
- Jamal watched as one of his entourage led Roksolana away. When she came to him earlier, he almost didn't believe her. He thought she might be looking for revenge, given how Miriam had treated her. But, looking back at her previous actions, he realized that she would rather kill the person herself and face the punishment than go through foul means. The woman had even slapped him that morning knowing he was the sultan and she could lose her life over her action. She had also disregarded his title and called him by his name when everyone could hear.
- After she had left, he had sat down and thought back about Miriam's action towards him ever since he came back from the journey. While she had always responded to his touch, she hadn't always been enthusiastic about having sex with him. Sometimes, she would just lie down like a log of wood while he had his way with her. But, since he came back two weeks ago, she had always been the first to initiate sex. Even trying to force him, like she was doing with him right now.
- Jamal looked at her and how she was trying to get him aroused. Her hands were in his shirt, caressing his nipples. He hated being touched by anyone, especially women, so he slapped her hands away. When she saw that that wasn't working, she switched tactics. She moved her body against him while kissing him, urging his body to wake up. Jamal nearly laughed at how much effort she was putting into this. He also thought about how Roksolana didn't have to seduce him like Miriam was doing, yet he was always hard for her. Jamal watched as his penis stood at attention at just the mere thought of her. He saw a triumphant smile lift Miriam's face as she felt his arousal.
